A New Career is Just Waiting for You! – A variety of vocational training programs are available to meet your interest and schedule.

Our Certified Nurse Aide and Home Health Aide training has been an important part of the community for many years. Students are trained to be competent, compassionate caregivers as Certified Nurse Aides. The state approved 180+ hour training program was developed in cooperation with and endorsed by nursing home facilities and home health care agencies in the Muskegon area. Students work through lecture, laboratory work, and on-the-job clinical training to become prepared for the State of Michigan certification exam and employment.

We have recently added the Patient Care Assistant course to our medical training programs. PCA’s find employment in hospitals, clinics, and other medical facilities. Under an RN or a physician, they assist the patient with proper hygiene and various activities of daily living, and may also be involved in taking vital signs, obtaining lab specimens and more. Our ten-week program includes cross-training as a CNA and clinical hands-on training for skills related to the hospital setting or medical facility.

The Comprehensive Medical Assistant course trains the student in the administrative and clinical tasks to keep the offices of physicians and other healthcare practitioners running smoothly. Graduates of this program will find employment in private and public hospitals, as well as inpatient and outpatient facilities. The duties may vary from office to office, depending on the location and size of the practice and the specialty of the doctor. Classroom time involves lecture and hands-on lab work, with the potential for on-the-job training through an externship following successful completion.

For those students who prefer administrative work, we offer daytime and evening classes for Medical Administrative Assistant, Legal Office Assistant, and Medical Coding and Claims Processing. A variety of courses and schedules are available. Call our office to learn more or request our latest brochure. 231-760-1350.
